Open Access Graduate Research Paper
This paper reviews existing models and research developed for Web-based Instruction (WBI) and traditional instruction. It focuses on a close examination of the major elements of planning and designing for WBI for higher education including: design models, motivation, methods of creating WBI, graphical user interface design issues and evaluation methods. A comparison of traditional instructional design and Web-based models of instructional design is discussed which concludes with a list of commonalties. Planning and designing motivation for the learner is especially important in distance education. Thus, models of motivation design and methods of incorporating motivation into WBI are included. A "how-to" technical section discusses design topics when creating a web site. Computer based and computer mediated testing techniques are included within the discussion of evaluation.
